It’s not uncommon to experience alignment problems at some point as a car owner. This means that when you have your hand off the wheel, the vehicle pulls, even slightly, to the left or the right. You can count on our Winston-Salem auto repair center to know exactly what your vehicle needs to get back on the right track.
To get this issue fixed, you get an alignment. When you cover only the front two wheels, it’s a front end alignment. This is not a problem with new vehicles, as the wheels are aligned and tested carefully at the factory. However, there are driving conditions that may adversely affect alignment, leaving you with a car that can’t drive straight over time. This results in tires with uneven wear, which leads to replacing them sooner than if you were driving a properly-aligned vehicle.
So what causes an alignment issue? The answers vary, but there are some common ones. Driving in very bad weather is one. Driving down a poorly maintained road or hitting potholes are two more. Unfortunately, the three are commonly related, as snow plows tear up roads that may not be patched up immediately.
Fortunately, with regular tire inspections, our Winston-Salem experts can catch problems early on and save money down the line with our auto repair specials. You’ll notice a difference in the way your vehicle drives. It will be smoother, with more responsive handling. Additionally, when your wheels are straight, cruise control is usable again! That results in a safer and more confident ride for all.
